Great News! Ocean City won Coastal Living
‘s recent contest for the Best Beach in America. Earning more than 100,000 votes, the South Jersey beach town bested Huntington Beach, Calif., in the final bracket.
I personally love both Ocean City and Huntington Beach. We were out in Huntington in October and stayed at the Hyatt resort. The hotel was gorgeous and had pools everywhere. If the kiddo wasn’t around I’d be hanging out at their grotto pool section but we had tons of fun at their little water park. While in town we enjoyed walking the pier, checking out the surf shops and ate a few too many burritos from Wahoos Fish Taco. We had a great time… However; Ocean City is my summer love. Our store is located in Ocean City. We live in Ocean City. I got engaged in Ocean City. The beaches are beautiful. Some of my favorite people live in Ocean City. Skee ball is only 10 cents at Jillys in Ocean City. It has something to offer everyone either wanting some quiet (visit the Gardens) or family fun (boardwalk boardwalk boardwalk)… maybe not something for the bar goer though since it is a dry town. That’s okay I have plenty of wine and beer waiting for our family and friends to arrive.
Do I believe in all these best beach contests? No. I actually had to force myself to vote. I think every beach is beautiful in its own way. I’m sure Ocean City had more votes than Maine since there are way more people that visit… Not sure if thats fair but I’ll just enjoy the win for now.
